Overclock a 2600xt

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have this 2600xt, and its pretty sad for even mildly recent games, figure i can OC it a bit and try to make it livable.... I can barely play The Settlers with the lowest settings and 800 x 600 (although i remember playing the demo with higher settings decently...) so, Should I just open up CCC and let it autotune, and go with that.. or maybe manually test with ATItool, how should I go about this? also, what are the steps to OCing a videocard, just keep upping core/mem until it wont display anymore? Gimme some ideas , thanks

What can hurt a videocard when overclocking, extreme heat and overvoltages seem to be the obvious, but what about the limits of the core and memory? Is it not TO detrimental to ramp up your core and memory, to the point of massive artifacting etc... basically How hard, or easy is it to kill or permanently damage a card, while keeping it cool enough, and stock voltage, and only changing core/mem?

Also, what are some of the OC's you guys have got on a 2600xt, similar cpu or not??

hmm, ATITool is a little funny, I try the Find Max, on either core or memory, I set it to stop after 45 seconds, and then it brings up the popup, that it was able to clock so high, e.g 1300 memory. Then you click OK, and nothing happens... is it supposed to change it to the max value? also when i Try to move the sliders they and click apply, they just jump back to default.

(A.D.D kicks in) on another note, according to this site http://www.techpowerup.com/wiki/doku...memory_timings my series of card, i believe on the BIOS start its listed RV680XT, which kind of blows holes in my One Tuner to Rule them all, idea, I had tried, Rivatuner, I played around in it a little, had it open and such, then tried to click on ATITool which was running just in the taskbar, and system freeze, did that every time, so I have since uninstalled Rivatuner, and was going to rely on ATITool to OC, might have to rethink this....

Maybe that page is just out of date, even though its supposedly the Official page, and maybe im just doing something else wrong

IDEAS???
